First layer. Nothing fancy simple wrap. Ran out of OD green

"layers" will be fine.........IF.......you can wrap them tight enough to keep them from slippin!
that kinda "wrap" is fine for a knife, because you won't be choppin and exertin high forces and vibrations to the entire length of the blade.
IF you are gonna wrap it like that, then i would suggest wrappin it with cord, then wrappin a tape layer. heavy duty athletic tape (http://www.ithacasports.com/blatspta1.html
) maybe, between your layers. then wrap your last 2 layers with cord.
TIGHT IS THE KEY. THE TIGHTER THE BETTER. leave prolly an inch of the end of the tang exposed. that way your wrap will be less likely to roll off.
here is something i found in the interweb that might help you out some, if you don't wanna go with the athletic tape idea.
